Sachin Pilot claims that the farmer who named him in suicide note for non-waiver of farm loan was not under debt

Congress party had made the pre-poll promises of farmer loan waiver in the States like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Karnataka but failed to deliver its promises.

After a farmer at Thakri village in Sri Ganganagar district of Rajasthan committed suicide on Sunday blaming the Ashok Gehlot government for failing to fulfil the promise of waiving the bank loans, Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot claimed that the farmer was not under debt.

According to reports, Pilot said that the matter is under investigation but as per his information the deceased farmer was not actually under debt. “The matter is under investigation. The Incident is regrettable. From whatever information I have received so far, the person was not actually under debt”, Pilot said. He added that the Rajasthan government was fully committed to secure a better future for farmers in the State.

The deceased farmer Sohan Lal had recorded a video on Sunday morning before consuming poison and had uploaded it on social media. He was immediately rushed to the nearby government hospital from where he was referred to Sri Ganganagar. Unfortunately, he died on the way to the other hospital.
